I was on for 2 years and gained 15 pounds (but of course, I didn't care since I was on a drug) Now, I've been off for
SIX MONTHS and
I can not lose the weight
. I know I ate more and
drank (like a fish) more on Lexapro, but I also kept going to the gym.
I am hoping that it re-calibrates, but I'm 48 years old, so I'm worried. I feel like a dumpy old lady.
Right now, I'm taking 5HTP for depression, and it's not as powerful as a drug but it does work. And it helps with food cravings.
